Nodding cranes, drops of snow and reflections in meltwater – beautiful observation, exquisite detail and photographic art of the wild by children of Abbots Langley Primary school.

Snowdrops

Snowdrops captured in February 2015 by school children

As part of the the multi-school WildWonder@Herts project, Abbots Langley pupils have been discovering and photographing the stunning snowdrop wild wonder in their local churchyard. Despite freezing temperatures and snowfall, the children’s observation was incredible and needs few words.  All photos by the pupils (aged 8-10).  Enjoy!

Just wanted to let you know that we were so inspired by your workshop this week at Abbots school that we went out to the woods today and took loads of lovely pictures! Close ups of the underside of fungi, insides of snowdrops! Using bark shapes as natural frames, its been a fab afternoon!!!  Thank you!

Looking up the children watched a red kite being mobbed by crows. And found an umbrella!

A huge thank you to all the children, parent helpers and staff (especially Mrs Hill & Mr Billing) at Abbots Langley school for making this such a fantastic success – school blog here. Joining work by children from 11 other Hertfordshire schools, the WildWonder@Herts exhibition will be on view to the public at Hatfield Galleria from 25th May
